1. By throwing real facts backed up by proof out there fast and furious. MSNBC has been doing

that along with debunking the right wing junk news.

2. Does the First Amendment allow

someone to deliberately mislead the public?

Should it?

4. Of course they can. Except for libel and slander.

And public figures need to prove malice if they are libeled or slandered.

5. Yes. But there's nothing that says you can't legally require calling a spade a spade.

I'd very much like to see a law that says that if you're gonna call it news (in any form), it cannot turn a monetary profit for the parent company. Pay hannity or rush their millions form the ad buys and the ratings or whatever, but the owning company cannot make a buck. And if NOT that, it has to be announced before and after every commercial break that this is ENTERTAINMENT ONLY.
3 strikes and you get your license pulled and fuck you very much.

Rush and hannity and jones would be off the air in a month.
